Looks like 2017 is going to be a good year for Chinese tablets, the second Surface Pro 4 screen tablet is coming in the way of the Chuwi SurBook (Surface Book name rip off?) We have the Cube iwork 3X with the same screen, now this SurBook which has two full sized USB 3.0 ports, 6GB of RAM, Intel Wireless-AC, 128GB eMMC 5.0 for storage and it’s powered by the now very common Intel Celeron N3450. The tablet judging from the photos has a kickstand, active stylus (HiPen H3?) and optional type cover like the Surface Pro 4.
It looks to have a premium metal build to it and fingers crossed the screen is fully laminated.
It’s looking great if you ask me, good to see the full sized ports making a comeback. The only thing missing is M.2 SSD slot support? Not sure it will have it being a tablet unless there is an access flap to it. Here are some photos from the Chuwi Facebook page. Don’t forget we also have the Chuwi Lapbook 12.3 coming with this premium 3:2 ratio screen.
There is also talk of a HiBox Pro, my guess is an Apollo Lake Windows 10 Mini PC. And the SurBook Mini. In another image, I saw something that resembles a Yoga Book stylus laptop. Maybe another possible model or it could be the SurBook mini? One thing Chuwi is missing is a Core M3 tablet or laptops like Teclast and Cube.
Thanks to David for the tip.
